Bigger than it looks

When we went inside, we were surprised at how big it is. It's decorated very nice, has a good atmosphere. Also, surprised at how busy it was on a Tuesday night. I had the taco salad which was just okay. My husband had the special which he liked. The chips and salsa were good, the waiter was... read more

We eat here on most Sunday afternoons after church. The food is fresh and delicious, the waitstaff is attentive and friendly, and there is seldom a wait because it's a very spacious restaurant. I highly recommend the Chori Pollo--a dish with grilled chicken, cheese dip, rice, chorizo, and pico de gallo. It's amazing! But whatever you do, don't miss out... More

If you check out the specials, you'll find plenty to eat at a very reasonable price. Friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere.

Anytime my niece can get Mexican that's where we go, especially when it's listed at the top for the city. It's bigger in on the inside than what appears on the outside. Good food, prices and quick. Waitress was ok, in my opinion. I guess we arrived to close to her break time or she was tired from a rush,... More

Food was out of this world. Usually can get a Mexican restaurant about anywhere you go, but the wait staff were very helpful and eager. The food was spot on for taste as well as presentation. The restaurant was very very clean and even the bathroom was in a-1 condition. If ever back in the area will be visiting again.

Traveling out of town, you can come across a lot of Mexican restaurants that really just shine and Las Trancas is one of them. Portions are VERY generous and the price is very conservative. Tip: If you want to get some cheese sauce and enjoy some chips before the food arrives, wait a bit to order your entree. Food comes... More

Jackson county as a whole is only around 30000 residents and thus gossip spreads like wild fire and despite it's past issues I have never had a bad experience. We usually go in groups of 12 or more. Our food is always fresh, fast and Delicious. My personal favorite is Jalisco, with a long island ice tea (or just coffee... More

We saw their sign on the interstate as we were driving through the area and decided to give them a try. The restuarant is nice and well decorated. We were seated immediately and given chips and salsa as soon as we sat down. It was a nice surprise to find that they had a lunch menu on a Sunday and... More

A friend and I stopped here as we were passing by the Ripley area. The staff were very friendly. The salsa and chips provided before the meals we ordered was very good. The salsa had a great taste and was not super hot as some places I have been. The fajita meal is was also very good. This is definately... More
